Saturday, September 8, 2012

Course Description:

Come run a fast 5K that winds through Hembree Park’s crushed gravel trails and along the quiet asphalt roads of a nearby neighborhood. This fun and little-known route is convenient for runners from Roswell, Alpharetta, Milton, and other surrounding areas.

Kids are encouraged to join for the first kilometer, which finishes in the park playground.


Benefits the NFCC & The Cottage School

NFCC’s education services are designed to help participants move toward financial stability, find better jobs, become stronger leaders within their families, and actively participate within the community. Our mission is to build self-sufficiency and prevent homelessness and hunger in our community by providing emergency assistance and enrichment programs. The proceeds from this race will support programming.

We are partnering with The Cottage School with the goal to help build a sense of self for students with special learning needs through academic and experiential programming.  The Cottage School prepares individuals for fulfillment of their true potential as confident, productive and independent adults.
